over here, aren't we? >> thanks for the red light at the top of the camera. >> is that what that means? >> we're so glad you're here, alex. >> that's right. rosemary, good to see you. you've been busy, i know. the heaviest stuff has moved past us? >> moving out. the south bay is still experiencing it a little, but the north and central bay are improving, verified nicely with this last system here and as predicted, we are looking at the aftermath. that columns a lot of advisories -- includes a lot of advisories in place. that is sfo where we have wet roadways and runways but at least the visibility is not so bad. we are looking at advisories in places for most of sunday. first of all a flash flood watch for the entire bay area which means expect minor flooding in your neighborhood. you'll find it there and on the roadways and freeways and then we have a few areas where we
7:31 am
have extra concern. we'll start in the napa county area where we have a flash flood warning until 9:15 this morning. our creeks and our streams and our rivers are really full and some of them are overflowing. we have a warning in place from see sebastopol to petaluma and the santa clara has pretty much a widespread advisory and at felton at the river there's some flooding going on trickling into santa cruz until 10:30 this morning. take it easy out there. hopefully you are indoors with no place to go. here's stormtracker 2 now pushing out of the south bay, morgan hill, gilroy seeing some pretty good rain right now. notice squeezing in closer it's light over the santa cruz and over san jose. into the east bay we have a few scattered showers reported, fremont, milpitass stretching towards pleasanton and
7:32 am
livermore and along 580 through altamont and tracy, but the north bay and central bay, cloudy, drizzle but not like overnight. we continue with the wind advisory, although it looks like the coast and hills where we're seeing it really gusty, the rest of us 10 to 20 miles an hour. that's likely for the rest of today. could see 1/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches over the next 24 hours especially for our hills. so we aren't done completely. it's going to be soggy out there and the winter storm warning continues until tomorrow morning with snow in the sierra. later i'll have a look at the timeline and in the extended forecast a more prolonged break coming our way. i'll have your numbers for today coming up. a flash flood warning has been issued in parts of napa and sonoma counties. >> we have ktvu's appeary allie
7:33 am
rasmus. -- allie rasmus. >> reporter: you can see the water moving at a pretty fast clip. we've seen some trunks and trees and large branches and debris, but it's not near flood bank stage and there's been no flooding in in area. so the residents around here are in good shape for now. this is sonoma creek near brookside road and cal -- caliene road. there was some flooding on highway 101 northbound in novato, the on ramp to highway 37 in that area was shut down due to flooding, so we had to take a round about way to get up here. we did catch up with sonoma public county works crews making the rounds a short time ago checking to be sure there was no flooding problems, seeing if they had to shut down
7:34 am
any side streets in this area. they told me they haven't encountered any flooding problems in this area in sonoma just yet, but oftentimes when you have heavy rain and flash flood warnings as there is one in effect in this area and the bay area until 9:15 this morning, sometimes near highway 121 and fremont drive in sonoma they do have some problems there. for now looking at sonoma creek behind us, it's moving at a fast rate, but no flooding to report. still the rain isn't over. we could see scattered showers and it's not raining now, but about 10 minutes ago we had another cell pass over us and it rained pretty well and then it moved on. that's kind of the story out here for much of the morning. people who live in this area are keeping an eye on creeks like this one. >> thanks. not just the rain, people are being warned this morning also about really strong winds with this storm system.
7:35 am
a high wind advisory is in effect for parts of the bay area. yesterday people had their umbrellas out along the embarcadero and san francisco, some running for cover. in many cases those umbrellas didn't stand up to the high winds. >> i grew up in oakland and this is a lot of rain. down south by santa cruz everything was flooding and the waves in the ocean we heard were getting up to like 60 feet. >> a large swell is bringing those big waves, strong rip currents and sneaker waves along the coast. be very careful if you head out to the coast line today. also we are starting to see some power outages in the bay area. obviously when you get the strong winds and saturated soil, it tends to bring down a lot of those trees onto power lines. here's pg&e's outage map this morning. outages aren't too bad, but there are some along the peninsula, but no major outages being reported at this
7:36 am
particular time. you can see just a few in the east bay, in the walnut creek area, concord area and obviously some in marin county as well. we'll keep tabs on those. in the north bay a few other outages but pg&e not reporting any major outages at least at this time. president trump was busy on his first full day in the white house. he attended a prayer service at the washington national cathedral before paying a visit to the cia. during his meeting with the central intelligence agency the president took time to build back some relations with an organization he's criticized in the past. >> i believe that this group is going to be one of the most important groups in this country toward making us safe, toward making us winners again. >> since crump criticized the
7:37 am
intelligence community following reports russia hacked the u.s. election, president trump blamed the media for causing a rift between himself and the agency. the bust of winston churchill is now back in the oval office. many reporters had noticed that the famous british leader's statue had returned as donald trump was signing executive orders shortly after his inauguration friday. president obama had that bust premoved when he took office and replaced with one of dr. martin luther king, jr. during his presidency. the bust of dr. king is still in the oval office. that statue of churchill has just been added to the collection inside the room. president trump has also changed the curtains from red to gold. mars and rallies were held across -- marches and rallies were held across the country for women's rights. you can see many of the pictures were taken near san francisco city hall. that's where tens of thousands of people rallied. demonstrations were also held
7:38 am
yesterday in oakland, san jose, walnut creek and several other bay area cities. the sheer number of people marching in the bay area required careful coordination by b.a.r.t. and a lot of patience from riders. >> here's how people handled the transportation crunch. >> reporter: most were here for the same reason and took the wait in stride. >> there's so many people that we can't even tell if the march has started. so we're at the end and more people are coming, but you can't really tell if it's moving. >> good morning and welcome, exits in either direction. >> reporter: b.a.r.t. station employees had to help out more than usual. >> it's been crazy, but it's been wonderful. >> reporter: an estimated 20,000 people exited the lake merritt station for the women's march in oakland. >> i thought we were early, so i was a little bit surprised
7:39 am
there were that many people. >> reporter: b.a.r.t. had an average 20 minute wait at each station. it didn't seem to bother riders who were not here to march. >> probably about a half hour. no. the energy was great and i mean i think it's wonderful. >> reporter: macarthur station in oakland had to stop people from overfilling the platform. >> today it's probably more than 10 to 15 minutes. >> reporter: riders say they appreciated their fellow marchers cooperating with b.a.r.t. employees. >> it was smooth. everybody is being nice and cooperative. >> reporter: once outside in a sea of other ping hats and sign holders the -- pink hats and sign holders the number of bodies on streets forced several local roads and 880's northbound off ramp to close. the tens of thousands of people at the women's march did not create any incidents for law enforcement. those marches and rallies extended into several counted it is overseas.

8:00 am
this is mornings on 2 weekend. >> good morning to you. it is sunday, january 22nd. good morning. i'm claudine wong. >> we have a lot of wet weather moving through the bay area. give you a live look of mount sutro, cloudy skies and the heaviest rain has kind of moved through our area now, but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods yet, lingering showers throughout the area and also a big concern with flooding in many spots, especially in the north bay and santa cruz mountains. >> that's right. every time this happens we think oh, we're out of the woods because the rain has stopped and not true because we still have a lot of advisories in place. this is a live look at san jose, highway 101, santa clara county fire tweeting engine 84 is on the scene of the old santa cruz highway.
8:01 am
it's closed. there's a big tree that is down they just tweeted there. >> also let's put the traffic map up on your screen there. there are some spots of flooding. we should first of all tell you that you don't see it here, but highway 37 in the north bay is shut down between highway 101 and atherton. highway 37 is closed due to being flooded entirely. this actually flooded a week ago, i believe, when we had another powerful storm in the bay area. highway 37 shut down in the novato area. also in the south bay we just got word highway 17 northbound at vine hill road, caltrans says all lanes are blocked because of another mudslide there. they've had several. >> it's men pressie and wet and highway -- been messy and wet and highway 121 and 12, allie
8:02 am
mass rasmus is there. are we going -- rasmus is there. are we going to get an actual dry out break? >> we'll have to wait a couple days. how about slow improvement coming our way? we do have a lot of advisories in place this morning. we have wind, flash flood watch, sierra has its own advisory and some of our local creeks and streams near flooding and over flooding in a little bit i'll show you those advisories. here's a live look at the golden gate bridge. that's a beautiful shot actually. we saw the heavy downpour, steady rain sweep across the bay area early this morning. it's on its way out, but scattered showers will remain in the forecast for your sunday. don't put away the umbrella. here's the flash flood watch that goes until 6:00 this afternoon and it is for everybody. everybody included in there means urban flooding. the roadways, freeways, just be careful out there. it's messy of then you have
8:03 am
certain areas in the north bay and the santa cruz mountains where we're dealing with flooding along of? our streams, creeks, rivers. the flood warning here goes through areas of napa county until 9:15 this morning, includes sonoma and areas of just farther south than that, american canyon area. this was supposed to expire at 7:45 this morning. it's now posted until 7:30 tomorrow morning including petaluma. be prepared if you live in this area, you'll find a little flooding especially near creeks and streams. how about into the santa cruz mountains where we have the river actually causing flooding in and around felton area into the santa cruz area. this goes until 10:30 this morning. we still have a lot of runoff coming down from the hills and the topography in the bay area
8:04 am
lends itself to create that flooding even after the rain is gone. here's stormtracker 2 where the rain pretty much looks gone, but we are continuing with scattered showers today. morgan hill and gilroy continuing to see steady rain and closer to the east bay we have just scattered showers reported for milpitas stretching towards highway 580, livermore, altamont pass a little light rain. the north bay and central bay looks good, a lot of cloud cover and moisture in place, some drizzle, a few pockets of light rain. at 3:00 and 4:00 in the afternoon it's coming back. as we get into 10:00, we're still dealing with wet weather, scattered showers in your forecast for monday. when i come back, i'll have the numbers for today. we'll look at the extended forecast and i'll show you why the dry weather is expected to move back in coming up. the rain moved in overnight. here's new video showing that steady rain falling in the
8:05 am
south bay. this is video that was taken in los gatos about 1:30 this morning. you can also see the strong winds during the overnight hours and the pounding rain that came down in that area. also the wet weather may to be blame for this crash in san jose before 2 a.m. this morning on southbound 280 near highway 101. this was just one of a number of crashes that the chp has been dealing with across the bay area. this morning two people are missing in monterey county after falling into rough surf. this happened yesterday off pebble beach near 17 nile drive and bird rock road. the two people were swept off the rocks and into the surf. the search was called off last night because of unsafe weather conditions. the coastguard wants to remind everyone to stay away from the ocean and off of rocks when we have this kind of high surf. part of highway 121 in
8:06 am
sonoma is closed now because of flooding. >> that's right. we have ktvu's allie rasmus there at that scene with more on what's going on. good morning. >> reporter: you can see for yourselves, this intersection has a virtual river flowing through it at route 12 and highway 121 in sonoma. the sonoma creek overflowed its banks and is pouring out into the intersection here. you can see the traffic signals are inundated with water. in this case green doesen mean go because this road has been closed. caltrans workers are out here. we asked them about when this happened and they said 10:30 last night is when the san pablo creek overflowed its banks and this state route highway started getting flooded. so you're taking a look right now, this is millerick road.
8:07 am
this is usually a dirt road and you can't see. it's just water always far as you can see. i asked caltrans how deep this water was. you can see it's flowing at a pretty good clip. he said he wasn't about to go out and find out. it's deep enough for it to be dangerous in this area and that's why they've shut this down. this isn't the only road closure in the north bay. this is sonoma, but in novato northbound highway 101, the on ramp to highway their 7 -- highway 37 is also shut down because of flooding there. the north bay dealing with a lot of rain and flooding this morning, again highway 121 and state route 12 in sonoma. the sonoma creek has overnight its banks. -- has overflowed its banks. sonoma creek is about 150 yards west where we're standing, so water from that creek
8:08 am
overflowing into this intersection and there's no estimated time for retomorrowing. obviously all this water has to recede before they can do that safely. >> there's nowhere else for the water to go. it passes over a bunch of fields, but those are just saturated, right? >> reporter: right. the rule of thumb is less than a foot of water, i think about 6 inches of water, that's enough to push and carry cars and small vehicles out of the way and even suvs. that's exactly why they've shut this down. you can even see the current going through where the creek is overflowing into the street out here. so it looks like it's moving pretty fast, definitely would not be safe to drive, let alone walk through it. >> can i ask, i know that's a fairly rural sort of area where you are, but is there any impact to homes or businesses in that area in terms of the flooding? >> reporter: well, there are some wineries and some
8:09 am
vineyards in this area. when we were driving here, we passed through some flooded vineyards, but it looks like that's a church in the distance there. i think they are obviously closed because of what's going on here, but we can't get to the other side and immediately look to see if there's any residences. there is a flash flood warning still in effect until 9:00 this morning. so people throughout the north bay got the warning via radar, on their cell phones that if they live near these creeks, san pablo creek being one of them to, find higher ground because flooding was either happening or imminent. >> thank you very much. earlier this morning on fox news sunday here on ktvu white house chief reince priebus was one of the guests and the topic was the media's portrayal of donald trump. >> a reporter shoots first, aims later. >> reporter: are you saying
8:10 am
there's a conspiracy here? >> i'm saying there's an obsession by the media to delegitimize this president and we are not going to sit around and let it happen. we are going to fight back tooth and nail every day and twice on sunday. >> so one of the arguments is over a reporter's post president trump had removed the bust of martin luther king, jr. from the oval office. the statue was actually there. that reporter later tweeted he just couldn't see it at the time. new white house press secretary shawn spicer attacked the media almost yelling as he read a prepared statement about how many people had shown up to watch trump be sworn in as president. many media outlets showed side by side photos like this of the crowds during the 2009 inauguration of president obama and at president trump's inaugural. >> this was the largest
8:11 am
audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe. these attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong. >> so the question is not number but whether this was the largest. the national park service does not give official numbers for crowds, but d.c. metro reported fewer trips had been taken on this inauguration than obama's in 2009 or george w. bush's in 2005. we should mention spicer did not answer questions from the media. he read that prepared statement and said he'll get his first official briefing monday. pope francis this morning says he is not going to form an opinion about the new u.s. president just yet. the pope told a spanish newspaper he doesn't like what he called judging people early. pope francis says he'll see what president trump actually does before he makes any decisions about him. the pope was asked about populous style political leaders emerging in europe and
8:12 am
the u.s. and he said people should not seek a savior in times of crisis. he added in the 1930s adolf hitler was voted for by the german people and then he destroyed the people. an update on former first lady barbara bush, her road to recovery after being checked into a bay area hospital. >> there is a winter storm warning and travel up to the mountains is treacherous. we will talk coming up here with kevin cooper, spokesperson for vail resorts, to see how those resorts are handling all that snow. where are they putting it all?
8:13 am
i'm at higher risktwice as likfor depression.troke. i'm 26% more likely to develop an irregular heartbeat. i have a 65% higher chance of developing diabetes. no matter who we are,
8:14 am
these diseases can be managed or prevented when caught early on. because with better research, the right medicine, and with doctors who help keep me healthy to begin with, we will thrive.
8:15 am
we were rocking in the overnight hours with wind and rain and giving you a live look out our doors this morning, we're still covered in gray skies. showers are in the forecast still today with advisories for our creeks and streams. i'll look at what you can expect for today and in the extended forecast dry weather coming our way, more on this in a bit. let's talk about the snow. you know i love the snow and love to ski, but the sierra getting a lot of snow this weekend. i don't want to say too much, but right now a winter storm warning is in effect for the lake tahoe area in place until early tomorrow morning. >> joining us by skype right now kevin cooper, spokesperson for vail resorts, and morning
8:16 am
to you. how you doing? are you at the south shore? >> yeah. >> what's going on? >> last year we talked about the godzilla el nino. i think it was delayed about 365 days till right now. it's actually snowing heavily snow, just started to move in about four hours ago. since 5 a.m. this morning it's already snowed 6 inches. do the math on that. we'll be getting 2 to 4 inches in the next 12 to 24 hours. in the last 72 hours you guys, 51 inches. that is a lot of snow. >> it's crazy. i was just saying i don't want to say too much. we love snow, but there are some real concerns about avalanche danger. we saw kirkwood yesterday morning on 2 and it looked like it took a while to get those chairlifts up because of safety issues you have to deal with. >> it is definitely. the avalanche center issued a
8:17 am
high avalanche advisory for the sierras. it went from moderate to considerable to high. this has happened over the last month. january has been impressive. i think right now we're probably at the most snowfall ever in january. i believe last week was the most snow in 24 hours that we've had since 1982. so it is very, very high avalanche danger right now. if you're doing backcountry, don't. stay home. play scrabble. >> not to get too technical, but when you ski off trail a little bit into the trees, those tree wells, people can get really stuck. the buddy system and all these things we haven't really had to employ the last couple of years really matter out there on the mountains. >> yes. yesterday i was at heavenly skiing. kirkwood at highway 88 was closed. skiing about 36 inches and in the lower elevations and that was my speech was ski with a
8:18 am
friend. make sure that you be aware of tree wells and deep snow out there. that is what we're having right now. the beauty of this is wow. the water tables in the state of california and monday, tuesday into wednesday and the month of february is going to be absolutely fantastic, but don't even bother coming to the sierra today, tomorrow. right till monday, tuesday. >> i'm glad you said that. >> i hope you recorded this. >> that is news right there. >> i guess along with the skis and snowboards once people head up to tahoe area, they also should bring a snorkel, i guess? is that right? >> when it's cold enough to snorkel, that is the difference today from yesterday just to today. yesterday the snowplowed and it was 11% and today it's about
8:19 am
14%. that's the sheer layer being built. temperatures will drop. we'll have to do a lot of avalanche safety and mitigation. caltrans is on the road as well, but when it's snorkel time, the avalanche danger is high. >> how did you take that back picture? allie was convinced it was photoshopped. >> you drop your hip into the snow and just smile, smile, smile. >> and get your buddy to pull you out. >> how did you get out of there is the better question? all right. kevin cooper. >> be careful on the roads out there. you're always smiling and i know you're a plant guy, but it does look miserable out there right now. when you're telling us to stay away for maybe a week, you know it's miserable. >> chess or scrabble today. >> know you've got a great season in front of you. thanks so much, as always.
8:20 am
>> see you. >> he's always the best. anyone else doing that little skype from us would be miserable and covered and it's cold, but he's still grinning. that's coop. >> i said coop, you send us reports morning, noon and night do. you ever get cold? he said never! yes indeed. he loves the snow. we, of course, need the rain and are lucky to have it, although it's causing some trouble out there and the scattered showers will remain in place for your sunday. giving you a view, beautiful sky. we won't dry out completely. the steady heavy stuff is gone, the main event, the front, the strongest winds. that has passed through, but we continue with advisory in place for today. in fact, the whole shade of green is a flash flood watch for the entire bay area. you can expect minor flooding

150 yards west of where we are give or take. over here you can see is where it's overflowing its banks. we put this marker out here, this block of wood. this is where the water level was when we got here probably about 45 minutes ago. so you can see the water has receded quite a bit, but there is still a flash flood warning in effect for this area until about 9:15 this morning. also want to point out what's around us here at this intersection. that building over there, it looked to me like it was a church, but that's actually the shell vista fire station. we've reached out to them this morning to see if there were any evacuations in this area, if they had any flooding. a public works crew member mentioned this morning this is an area that typically does flood when you have a lot of
8:37 am
heavy rain. we reached out to the fire department, but obviously you can't just walk over and knock on their door. highway 121 and 12 shut down because of the flooding out here since 10:30 last night. >> if you're watching, call allie. >> reporter: i've called and sent e-mails. >> stop ignoring allie. prepare i need a boat. >> where is the ktvu canoe when you need it? >> we saw a little debris behind you? are you seeing a lot of that? sometimes that can be an indication of what's happening. >> reporter: i noticed that, too, like a smallish tree trunk carried away by the water out here. that was the first i'd seen of a large piece every debris. you can see the blue skies out here. the rain has stopped, so maybe the worst is over. now it's just a question of waiting for the water to recede before this road can open up. >> looking pretty good out there.
8:38 am
thank you very much, allie rasmus live in sonoma county. the heaviest part of the storm moved through the bay area overnight. a lot of the intense rain moved through the north bay. >> joining us now is officer andrew barclay from marin county. how is marin county doing? >> we've seen drier days. >> i know there's some road closures going on? >> we have quite a few, but the most notable is the highway 37 closure. this is the same closure that we had last week that actually lasted almost a week. so the exact same area between highway 101 and at novato creek is completely under water. >> is this again, officer barclay, a combination of the intense rain and high tides in that area? >> right now we're not really
8:39 am
looking at high tides. what we're seeing is on either side of the roadway is a lot of marshland and there has just been so much rain over the last couple weeks hat water has nowhere to go. so -- that the water has nowhere to go. the water is sitting and as we get more rain is comes up higher and higher and goes into the roadway. >> nobody was trapped. last week quite a few cars were stuck in highway water on highway 37. >> we have one vehicle stuck out there around 5:30 this morning. yes. we received a call this morning of an individual stuck. that vick is quat a ways underwater, as you can see. the fire -- that vehicle is quite a ways underway, as you can see. the fire department got him out. that was the only vehicle. >> that's good. i guess the question is, there's no e.t.a. because you have to wait for
8:40 am
the water to go down and kind of keep people clear of the area, right? >> right. working now can caltrans and that same image off to the right-hand side you can see one of the pumpsizationed there. we -- pumps stationed there. we are told there's so much water coming out of the marsh areas and going over the levees. we have to allow the water to subside to start pumping and getting some of the water out of there. as long as it's coming over the levees, we can't do anything. >> officer barically giving us the update -- barically giving us the up-- barclay giving us the update from marin county at highway 101 interchange and atherton avenue. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your time. >> any time. let's talk politics.

president trump was busy on his first full day in the white house attending a prayer service at washington national cathedral before taking a visit to the cia. the president took time to try to build back relations with an organization he's criticized in the past. >> i believe that this group is going to be one of the most important groups in this country towards making us safe, towards making us winners again. >> tensions have been high since trump criticized the intelligence community following reports russia hacked the u.s. election. trump blamed the media for causing a rift between himself and the agency. the bust of winston church him is now back in the oval office -- churchill is now back in the oval office. many noticed the famous leader's statue had returned as president trump was signing executive orders following the inauguration. president obama had the church hill bust removed and replaced

with a bust of dr. martin luther king, junior. the bust of dr. king is still in the office. the statue of churchill has just been added to the collection in the room. trump also changed the curtains in the oval office from red to gold. president trump tweeting about the meeting with the cia. around 4:30 a.m. he said had a great meeting yesterday at cia headquarters, packed house, longstanding ovations, amazing, people win despite the criticism of the rift with the intelligence community. he also tweeted about the women's marls yesterday and talked -- marches yesterday and talked about the peaceful protests. he said, "i recognize the rights of people to express their views." earlier he said watched protests yet but that was under the impression we just had an

election? why didn't these people vote? celebs hurt that cause badly. madonna was one of them he referred to. she said express yourself and scarlet johansson asked for people to support all women in the fight of equality in all things. alicia keys tweeted directly at the real donald trump saying americans are all colors, faiths, culls and genders. -- cultures and genders. we have faces and believe in the dream. former first lady barbara bush could be released from the hospital today. both mrs. bush and george h.w. bush are at the same hospital in houston. the former first lady was admitted for little bronchitis.

all right. it has been almost 48 hours since donald trump was sworn in as president of the united states. here's a live look at the white house this morning. >> joining us this morning to talk about the first 48 hours in office here and what is to come for the 45th president of the united states, we are joined this morning by ktvu political analyst brian sobel. >> it's 46 hours and counting. i would say just the first 48 hours has been sort of tumultuous in a sense. most administrations start off this way, but this particular 48 hours has been interesting, already a lot of people arguing
8:48 am
, the people on the streets, all sorts of stuff. >> it seems to me so much of the focus so far for this administration has been how big the crowd was at donald trump's inauguration. is that where the administration wants the focus to be? >> we would hope not. there are tons of really important issues. i think there's just a distrust of the media right at the get go and i think the media, first of all, trump administration needs to raise their game around the media and i think the media needs to respond. worrying about whose bust says in the oval office -- bust is in the oval office to me is of little significance or consequence against all these other issues. >> but you go to the press conference yesterday, he was very angry i think is a fair assessment of his tone, but he says it was the most attended inauguration ever and that creates a back and forth as
8:49 am
well. then you have trump tweets about the women's march which i want to see if we can pull those up. one of the first ones he said this morning around 4:30 our time was he talked about the celebrities being there and that didn't i win the election? is that the right response? he later tweeted about peaceful protests being part of democracy. is that the right response when you have so many people out on the streets? he said watched protests yesterday but under the impression we just had an election. why didn't these people vote? celebs hurt the calls badly. as to the response of the number of people in the streets, what do you think about that? >> number downing is sort of a ridiculous thing and again to be fair, everybody is doing it. the national park service quit counting people for that very reason. >> they didn't want to be involved. >> exactly. was it 300,000? 350? who cares. the important thing is people came out to express their point of view.
8:50 am
that's a good thing. i think that later tweet reflects that. i think at the same time the trump administration is getting not concerned. they're tired of hearing the nitpicking about the legitimacy of his win and they're going to fight back on that. >> sure. let me ask you about president trump's visit to the cia headquarters yesterday. that was his first official stop after taking office. he went there to basically make amends and sort of build a bridge with the intelligence community that he had spoken poorly about in the recent past. do you think he did enough to build a bridge with that community and make amends? >> well, the cia and intelligence agencies are resilient in terms of what is said about them. presidents have always had a
8:51 am
contentious relationship with the intelligence community because they're taking things in acting off of information that comes. some presidents have better relations with the intelligence community than others. donald trump has been highly critical of the cia and other agencies around the weapons of mass destruction which frankly so did a lot of american people have concerns about, but at the end of the day every day he gets a briefing about world events by the cia and he's going to have to come together with the intelligence agency on some level. >> some of them did come back and say he shouldn't have been there and talking about the wall. do you believe it's a perceived rift or does it really exist? >> i think they'll work through it. i think in the first 48 hours we're seeing a lot of the scabs ripped off for a thousand different reasons and everybody
8:52 am
has a little angst. i think what's going to happen over the new folks days and weeks and months is people will settle in to what is actually going on. for example, the first issue around the affordable care act or executive order, you read it or looked at it, it was totally symbolic. it was an effort to say hey, watch the expenses around the implementation of this act, but it's going to be weeks and months before a replacement comes in and so people just need to -- everybody would benefit from kind of cooling their jets a little bit. >> it seems as though president trump and the administration is still campaign mode. >> yes. >> when do you think president trump will give on the to this presidential mode? >> yeah. i'm hoping soon. i think 0 will drive it is --
8:53 am
what will drive it is 48 hours in we haven't had the first international crisis, but it's right around the corner. when it happens, everybody has got to really focus on the problems. i've been saying for a long time the difference between campaigning and governing is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. you know, if you think about it, there's a monstrous difference there. so now he's the president of the united states. so all this ancillary stuff needs to kind of go away and i think events will make that happen. >> look at the first 100 days and see how that shakes out. thank you foryour insight. stay with us. when we come back, we'll talk about this very different type of super bowl ad. hear what hyundai is planning to create for the big game.
